Readers are invited to join the inquisitive hoglets as they navigate machinery, foxes, bonfires, and a very smelly drain!

Readers will find a thrilling adventure story alongside puzzles, autumn crafts and tasty recipes, creating a fun experience for the whole family.

Review by Stacey

Prickelus Gets Caught by Rebecca Buxton is a fabulous book that is so much more than just a storybook, plus, it is filled to the brim with hedgehogs. It contains an adorable story, facts, colouring sheets, and activities.

When I first picked up the book I was a little bemused as to why the pictures of the story had no colour but then I read that they had been left colourless on purpose so that the images could be photocopied and coloured in by the reader. What an amazing idea.

We all know that children love animals and one that they might not see often is the hedgehog, given they are nocturnal. For those that are fascinated by these spiky creatures, this book is a must. After reading the cute story about a family of hedgehogs the author has provided the reader with lots of helpful tips and facts, such as hedgehogs are gluten and lactose intolerant so you shouldn’t leave milk and bread out for them – They prefer meat cat/dog food.

At the back of the book, the author has provided some entertainment for the reader, including baking hedgehog scones, making pompoms, and even a board game. This is certainly a book that keeps on giving.

What I find remarkable about this book is that the author Rebecca Buxton is deaf, autistic, and dyslexic and that she used British Sign Language to tell her story to her two supporters who turned her signing into written English. This is a book the whole family can enjoy. In fact, I’m planning on passing my copy on to my sister who has a hedgehog box in her garden which currently contains a mother and her hoglets.

Her aim is to incorporate her passion of wildlife conservation, the wellbeing of children and heathy cooking into her work.
